Hallington is a small village in Lindsey, the northern part of Lincolnshire. It is in the Lincolnshire Wolds, situated two miles south-west of the nearest town, Louth.

Hallington is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as Halintun, with 25 households, 10 acres of meadow, and assigned to Earl Hugh of Chester.[1]

The village is probably the site of a Mediæval settlement, indicated by aerial observations showing earthwork evidence of ridge and furrow fields, crofts, buildings and sunken lanes.[2]

The parish church, which was dedicated to St Lawrence, no longer exists. Three isolated graves are all that remain of church and burial ground.[3]

Hallington railway station was sited in the village; it opened in 1876 and closed in 1956.[4] The main building still exists and is now a private residence.[5]

Off Station Road is Home Farm House, a Grade II listed farmhouse c.1800.[6]
